• Short Summary

    Female pilot Sheila Scott leaves London Airport in her small plane, bound for Nairobi.

  • Description

    No titles. Sheila Scott's record flight to Nairobi.

    London Airport (Heathrow).

    Various shots of female pilot Sheila Scott making her way from the main airport building to her small Piper Comanche plane, 'Myth Two' on the tarmac. She is setting off on a flight to Nairobi. Shots of the wing of the plane where several people have written good luck messages. Photographers take pictures as Sheila gets into the cockpit of the plane, blows a kiss and closes the door.

    The plane taxis over the tarmac and gathers speed. We do not see it take off, but apparently she made it into the air!
